DIFTA is pleased to announce our third match of the covid season on Sunday November 1. Strings setup at 8:30, registration and sight in range opens 9:00 am; shooters meeting 9:50; Match starts 10:00 sharp.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, on a 1st come basis. Send an email to mayer.mlmet@gmail.com to reserve a slot.

Due to covid and host club restrictions we are limited to 12 shooters, so if you decide not to shoot after reserving a slot, please let me know ASAP, to give others a chance to shoot.

During the match there will be 1 shooter per lane, and you will be responsible for keeping your own score. Hand sanitizer will be available. Masks must be worn when walking between lanes during the match, and at all times at the sight in range before the match starts.

At the sight in range because we have only six positions, shooters will have to coordinate so that only 1 person is on a lane at any time. Don't expect to have a lane to your self for the whole sighting period; be generous, and let other shooters get setup as well.

Course designed by Paolo for your pleasure is 72 shots, 12 lanes, average 29.1 Troyer, six targets > 40 Troyer; nine targets > 40 yards; one off-hand lane; and a few 3/8" targets.

Our third match of the 2020 season was held on Sunday November 1st. Temps were in the mid 40s and it rained throughout the match until the last shooter finished; then the rain stopped. The rain was different from our usual Maryland deluge, and fell at a gentle rate, but at the match end everyone and everything was soaking wet; scopes and eye glasses were fogging up, but spirits were high.Masks were worn on the sight in range; we had no squads, with only 1 shooter per lane; timers were not used, and there was no post match BBQ.

The course, designed by Paolo proved challenging as usual and nobody cleared all the lanes. Seven shooters competed in a 72 shot match, with 12 lanes, each with three targets shot twice, and one off hand lane, average 29.1 Troyer, six targets > 40 T; nine targets > 40 yards, and three 3/8” targets.

Brian Van Liew took the match high score of 65 in Open Division shooting a new rifle in a custom stock engraved The Truth. The TM 1000 made by Rapid Air Weapons has always done well in FT. Brian also set a personal best of three target failures during the match!

Frank Moscarillo, took the high score in the Hunter PCP Division, with a score of 60, continuing his multimatch lead in this division. In Hunter Piston Division Scott Broom took the high score, followed by Wayne Darrel, returning to DIFTA after a break of several years. Mark Bolster put on an excellent first performance for a novice shooter under extreme conditions. Hector Medina was our sole shooter in WFTF Piston.

 Mark Mayer acted as match director.

Our next match is scheduled for Saturday November 28th weather and Covid permitting.
